Over the past decade, Adam Driver has emerged as one of the more talented actors working in Hollywood today. Whether he’s starring in science fiction epics or much more intimate character dramas, Driver seems to have full command of what he’s capable of as an actor and uses his physically imposing presence and versatility to inhabit a wide array of different roles. Because Driver has been so experimental throughout his long career, it can be hard to pick the best movies he’s ever been in as an actor. In this list, we’ve tried to combine.
Driver’s first Oscar nomination came for his supporting turn in BlackKklansman, where he’s tasked with playing a cop who infiltrates the KKK. Driver’s Flip Zimmerman is Jewish, and while he obviously doesn’t face the same level of discrimination as the film’s central character, Driver knows how to make it clear that Flip understands what it’s like to be hated for who you are. Flip is on the scene for many of the film’s most tense sequences and proves to be an able partner to John David Washington’s Ron Stallworth. Driver and Spike Lee make for a great team, and we can only hope that the director uses him again.
